Port Olimpic / Barceloneta, Barcelona –
Part of a line of upscale club/lounge/restaurants that line the coast just below Port Olimpic’s twin towers, Sotavento is a beautiful venue even the most experienced clubgoers will likely be impressed by.
A swanky Italian restaurant by day, the venue transitions to club mode around midnight when the ample polished walnut dance floor is overtaken by dashing young men and chic women who are all about rocking to the deep tribal house sounds reverberating from the speakers.
Hopeful patrons who make it past the stringent screening at the door will find themselves descending a sweeping white staircase into the nightlife paradise within. The immaculate décor is just as heavenly as the fashionable clientele, with an emphasis on curving white banquettes and vintage chairs, all softly lit in blue and green by enormous chic-industrial lamps that hang low from the ceiling.
Costumed dancers, live singers, tumbling confetti, and swiveling disco lights further contribute to the decadent party vibe, while a massive beach terrace provides a soothing escape where guests can linger over a vodka on ice and a cool sea breeze.
Sotavento’s calendar can vary week-by-week, so would-be patrons will want to check the official website before dolling up and heading down to this slice of Olimpic paradise.
